Attending the Yamabuki Arts High School is Yuno’s dream-come-true, and she’s learned so much already—not only from her instructors, but also from her friends and neighbors who’ve made the Hidamari Apartments a safe, nurturing home. But as the day of her “big sisters’” graduation draws closer, it’s time for Yuno to take on the same role for Nazuna, Nori and the other budding artists who’ve entered Hidamari’s protective cocoon.
